Dropbox Will Shut Down Mailbox On February 26th, Carousel On March 31st, After Under Two Years In The Play Store

Dropbox is a cloud storage provider, but over the past couple of years, the company has tried to expand into something more. For some folks, it's also an email client. For others, it was a place not just to store photos, but to interact with them in a cool way.

That's because on April 9th, 2014, Dropbox released an email client called Mailbox and a photo gallery app known as Carousel. Now Dropbox is stepping away from both and intends to close each service early next year.

Google Authenticator Finally Dragged Out Of The Holo Dark Ages With A Material Overhaul And Android Wear Support

Protecting your online accounts is important, and 2-factor authentication is the best way to do that. The default method of getting 2-factor codes for most services is SMS, but authenticator apps can be more convenient. Google's own authenticator has been on the Play Store for years, but it's been very ugly until today. This app has finally gotten a material design makeover and a few new features too.

[Deal Alert] KMASHI 15000mAh External Battery Pack Reduced To $12.50 On Amazon With Coupon Code

For some people, an external battery pack provides comfort during a power outage. For others, it's a necessity, a way to avoid being alone once the sun sets.

Either way, don't spend your money on a charger that can only re-power your phone once before blowing its load. Instead, wait for a deal online and get something that can go five times as long.

Adobe Lightroom Mobile v1.4 Is Now Free To Use, No Creative Cloud Subscription Required

Adobe has a complicated relationship with Android. Most of its apps come to our beloved platform long after they've launched on iOS, and the updates tend to be slower to arrive thereafter. Keeping that in mind, Lightroom got a big update on iOS back in October that removed the requirement for a paid Creative Cloud subscription. Now Android is getting the same. As of today, Lightroom is free on Android.

[Weekend Poll] Are You Using Google Now On Tap? How Often?

Google Now On Tap was easily the most futuristic feature to be demoed when Android 6.0 was previewed at Google I/O earlier this year. We longed for it, anticipated it, and when it finally arrived... most of us didn't really find a use for it.

I'll be honest: I had completely forgotten Now On Tap even existed until Artem suggested this weekend's poll topic, one that I think will yield some interesting results. I haven't ever used Now On Tap in a serious way, only once or twice for demo purposes (as in the photo above), and I'm not even able to think of a single situation where it'd be much more helpful than, say, copying and pasting or just using voice search to perform a query.

[Bug Watch] Some Android Users Are Seeing Washed Out Screen Colors After Upgrading To Marshmallow Due To A Reduced RGB Range - Google Is Working On It

Are you noticing muted colors or unusual artifacts when watching video on your Android phone or set-top box after upgrading to Marshmallow? You're not alone. Dozens of users across several devices are complaining of muted colors after upgrading to Android 6.0. On Google's own Nexus help forum and Android issue tracker, plus less centralized places like XDA and Reddit, users are complaining of similar problems after the update.

5.1.1 NP 6.0 NP

The photos above were posted to code.google.com by a user with a Gmail address (#12 in the thread). The difference in black levels between the first image (video from a Nexus Player running Android 5.1.1) and the second image (the same device running Android 6.0) is obvious.

Google Search On Android Gets A Few New Contextual Bells And Whistles For Movies, TV Shows, Music, And More

Google is continuing to refine what data you can access without ever leaving its browser-based search interface. A few of the more complex options for searching popular culture have now made their way from the desktop to Android, and they've also been given some impressive layout adjustments. According to Google's own search blog, contextual information for music, movies, and television shows will now appear in a dedicated sub-section of Google Search. Some of this was already available, but some of it's definitely new.

Chrome For Android 47 Tweaks The Bookmarks Interface With A Slide-Out Menu, At Least For Some

Chrome's URL bar is so fast that I generally don't even bother with bookmarks anymore, but those who do might have noticed that they look a little different lately. In the latest version of the Chrome stable build for Android, there's a new user-selectable flag that can enable or disable a different interface for the Bookmarks manager. It can be enabled (or disabled, if you prefer) in the Flags settings page: chrome://flags/#enhanced-bookmarks-experiment.

Yu Announces Cyanogen OS 12.1 (Android 5.1) Over-The-Air Update For The Yuphoria

Yu's Cyanogen OS-running Yuphoria phone, sold primarily to the Indian market, has had CyanogenMod 12.1 (Android 5.1) available for almost half a year now. The catch is that it's been available as a CyanogenMod nightly build, requiring end users to flash a custom recovery, then a custom ROM in order to access it. Yesterday, the Cyanogen company and Yu itself announced the over-the-air rollout of the finished, consumer-ready update for the stock software build.

The YOG4PAS47N build is Android 5.1.1/Cyanogen OS 12.1 (the official commercial updates from the incorporated company lose the -Mod suffix). To upgrade, users need to be running the latest version of the retail software, YNG1TBS2P2.
